(This week’s review is written to the song “Torn Between Two Lovers,” lyrics and music by Peter Yarrow and Philip Jarrell, with apologies to the lyricists)




There are times when a teenager has to brood what’s on her mind?
Even though she knows how little it matters ?
Before I write another word let me tell you “what to do”
Let me hold your gaze and write these words as strongly as I can
“There’s yet another Twilight I’ve heeded and I’ve watched
But that doesn’t mean I like it less
And it knows it can’t impress me, and it knows it never will
There’s just this empty seat beside me that only it can fill”

Torn between Ed and Jake, feeling like a fool?
Watching both of them is breaking all my rules?
Torn between Ed and Jake, feeling like a fool?
Watching them both is breaking all my rules.

You mustn’t think I failed you just because I don’t like them
You were not expecting as if it’s love I ever had?
And all the things I ever wrote
I swear they still are true?
For no one else can give me back the time I gave to view

Torn between Ed and Jake, feeling like a fool?
Watching both of them is breaking all my rules?
Torn between Ed and Jake, feeling like a fool?
Watching them both is breaking all my rules.?

I couldn’t really blame you if you turned and walked away?
But with everything that’s shown inside, I’m sure you wouldn’t stay??

Torn between Ed and Jake, feeling like a fool?
Watching both of them is breaking all my rules?
Torn between Ed and Jake, feeling like a fool?
Watching them both is breaking all my rules
